  • Day 3 at Osmington Bay

    Published 22/05/22, by M Comins

    Hi everyone! 

    We were all up bright and early with the sunshine today! We started our day with a delicious breakfast where we could choose what we wanted from the buffet. 

    Today, everyone  prepared themselves for lots more action on site. Some of us started our morning with the zip-lining - Here are some quotes from the children:

    "WOW! That was SOOOOO COOL!"

    "I'm so scared to do it, but I want to prove to myself that I am able to do it"

    "This was my favourite activity"

    Other children took part in this activity throughout the day and some will do it tomorrow (which they now can't wait for!)

    We loved getting dressed in the gear for Street Surfin' and choosing an awesome board to practise with. We had lots of opportunities to work as a team and help each other.

    Our lunch today was a variety of sandwiches with crisps - and of course endless helpings at the salad bar too. 

    In the afternoon, lots of us also took part in rifle shooting, the low-level ropes course, archery and abseiling. After this much fun, it was time to refuel with pizza and wedges for dinner - with the best dessert - Belgium waffles.  

    We were then told the news that room inspections would take place in 20 minutes. The children quickly headed off to clean and tidy their accommodation before the teachers came round with clipboards to inspect! Luckily, we all passed...

    We are now enjoying an extra special PGL Sports Evening at 'Little Wembley' - starting it off with a huge game of dodge ball.

    We will be heading back to pack up our things afterwards as we know we are heading home tomorrow. We cannot wait to see you all soon and tell you all about the adventures of PGL!

  • Day 2 at Osmington Bay

    Published 21/05/22, by M Comins

    Hello everyone!

    WOW! Another hot day here at Osmington Bay! It has been a fun-packed day full of activities.

    Overnight we all managed to have a good night sleep – I think getting our crazy outfits ready and the ‘Wacky Races’ wore us out!

    Our day started with breakfast together. Then we split into two groups. The first group went to the Weymouth Water Sports Centre for raft building whilst the other group stayed and did activities on site such as abseiling, climbing, fencing and archery. Then we switched around in the afternoon.

    Our lunch today was the BEST! We had hot dogs with wedges - delicious.

    Once all the activities were finished at 5pm, we all joined together to enjoy our dinner! Afterwards, we met down at 'Little Wembley' and played volleyball, football and table tennis... and some of us built sandcastles and volcanoes. 

    We are currently enjoying our evening entertainment - Robot Wars.

    Hopefully we sleep well tonight after such a fantastic and busy day. 

    We wonder what we will do tomorrow?

  • Day 1 at Osmington Bay

    Published 20/05/22, by M Comins

    Hello everyone!

    After a long journey, we arrived safely at Osmington Bay - bringing the glorious sunshine with us! As soon as we arrived, we had our lunch before heading off to the beach to explore. We searched for pebbles with holes, played games and some of us were brave enough to dip our toes in the water!

    We have unpacked everything in our room and have met the Osmington Bay staff who will be looking after us for the next few days.

    Dinner was yummy! We could choose fish and chips or chicken curry with rice - followed by a chocolate éclair - delicious!

    The PGL staff told us to get changed into our wackiest outfits ready for the evening activity of 'wacky races'. They were great fun and we really got into the spirit of dressing up!

     We are all looking forward to the following activities tomorrow: raft building, climbing, fencing and archery
